Want to earn extra income? Is your work slowing down? Why not offer over seeding for the winter. Your customers wil have lush green lawn all winter that will require you to mow about every 2 weeks.





The best time to over seed the home lawn is mid-to-late October and early November, but more accurately after the first frost. Annual ryegrass is the fastest germinating variety and probably the cheapest. It looks very similar to perennial ryegrass with a dark green color and shiny leaves. Annual ryegrass grows quickly and requires frequent mowing (around 2 to 2.5 inch height) especially during late fall and early spring. Their water use rates are moderate and fertility requirements are low maybe one to two pounds of nitrogen over the winter months. For a dense stand of rye grass, over seed at a rate of about 10 12 pounds of seed per thousand (33 feet by 33 feet) square feet. And keep the lawn irrigated for several weeks to ensure germination.

There is a new annual rye grass from Texas A&M named "Pantera." This annual type look and growmore like the perennial types. The annual types will die out faster in the spring, and therefore, don't create as much a problem for the turfgrass growing in the lawn. For information about how to over seed, and should you over seed as well as overseeding bermuda with bluebonnets, see the fifth column in the October listing at:
